Monitor displaying yellow tint

By amykong30 ·
One day, without any warning, I booted up to find a yellow tint on everything - starting with the boot up command prompt and continuing into windows. I did some troubleshooting...I tried my monitor with a different computer - looks fine. I tried my computer with a different graphics card - looks fine. So, the obvious assumption is that my card went bad and I should get a replacement. Right? WRONG. I bought ATI Diamond Viper 9600XT AGP card as a replacement and the same problem persists. I am running a Dell Dimension 4300 Pentium 4 1.5ghz. No visible hardware conflicts, etc. Any ideas? The fantastic tech support staff at Diamond havent responded to my emails.Im banging my head against the wall.

Video Card Connection

My monitor had the same problem. Everything was plugged in nice and tight,and the monitor worked great on other pc's. But if I wiggled the monitor cable (in the DVI port of my graphics card) it "fixed" the problem. Turns out there were internal connection problems on the card. Hope this helps!

OK. I broke down and bought a brand new Planar 17" flat LCD display. And guess what... wrong. The problem persists with the same symptoms - YELLOW!!!
